      Mother's Day

      May 14, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

      We had a lovely calm night and instead of going into Azzurro, we/Captain Bob decided we should get an early start at 7:30! The day was lovely in that we had a decent wind from behind so we motorsailed and sailed down to Talamone on the mainland. Not much to see along the way as we were far enough out so our view was of sun, clouds, waves, distant islands and shores. The sun was shining and the seas were with us so it was calm, and peaceful. The typical pattern is for the wind to increase in the afternoon and, right on schedule, it started blowing as we were coming into Talamone bay. We were anchoring so it was not a problem and our anchor dug in as the 22 knot wind swung us around. Bob suggested that taking the dinghy off the foredeck would reduce the windage and lessen the swinging. So, Bob made a cradle using lines, directed the aim and I winched it up 💪. As I was lowering it to the water, the cradle lines shifted, the boat went vertical into the water and filled up! The seats were still above water and Bob was holding it so I grabbed a bailing pot and climbed in and started scooping hoping it wouldn't list too far and send me overboard! The water actually felt quite lovely but I wasn't prepared to take a dip! Once the bailing was done, I requested a cocktail, in a fancy glass, with my favourite chips! The kids called so the day was a success. ❤The entertainment was watching windsurfers and kite surfers zip around the bay at incredible speeds in the wind. Eventually the wind calmed and it was a peaceful night.Read more
